Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "Life's a Dance"
If you sit down and start to sew
A quilt you’ve planned with the math you know,
The shapes you choose will fit just right,
The design will grow to your delight.
You’ll tessellate and so much more.
With good math skills, your quilts will score.
You’ll translate, rotate, and reflect
A work of art in all respects!
Quilts use math in numerous ways,
From start to finish – in every phase.
Don’t worry ‘bout what you don’t know -
The math in quilts you’ll learn as you go.
